The present study evaluated the ability of automated pedestrian detection capabilities to provide the means to detect the presence of pedestrians as they approach the curb prior to crossing the street, and then to use that information to ‘call’ the WALK signal without any action required on the part of the pedestrian. The automated detection of pedestrians is not a new concept, having been used successfully in the United Kingdom and elsewhere as part of the PUFFIN (Pedestrian User Friendly… CONTINUE READING
